I agree with Todd about the film not being outdated and with all the crazy things happening today some military "mistake" could happen. One of the great war films of all time.

Thanks for the review, Todd. I would love to see some comparisons with the recent Criterion BD release, to know if this is a significant upgrade over that transfer -- which I thought was excellent. I will not upgrade this one to 4K unless there is a significant difference -- that is, assuming that Sony eventually releases these films separately in 4K.
